Chapel Blog December, 2014
As we “wrap up” the 2014 year, we will be spending our chapel times learning about generosity. Our theme for the month is found in 1 Timothy 6:18, “Command them to do good, to be rich in good deeds, and to be generous and willing to share.” It is easy to get caught up, during this time of the year, in “receiving” and lose sight of the importance of “giving.” We pray our students see the importance of being generous; not just at Christmas time, but throughout their lives.
Below is a snapshot as to what your child will learn during this month:
Generosity: Making someone’s day by giving something away.
December 2 – Bible Story: Parable of the Rich Man (Luke 12:13-21)
Bottom Line: People are always more important than stuff.
December 9 – Bible Story: Jesus is born (John 3:16-17, Luke 2:1 – 18)
Bottom Line: God gave the greatest gift when He gave us Jesus.
December 16– Kindergarten Play
This month, remind your children to be generous. Help them see the value of thinking of others and helping others. A perfect example of generosity is seen through the sacrificial Gift that God sent to us, and we celebrate this Gift at Christmas.
